I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 with gnome. I installed CompizConfig Settings Manager from Ubuntu Software Center, but it doesn't seem to work at all(no effect, animations, nothing...). I also tried to log out, and switch to gnome classic (I read that Compiz only work on the classic version of Gnome) but that didn't help either.

How do I make Compiz work with gnome/gnome classic? and are there any good alternatives to Compiz under Gnome?

if I didn't provide other helpful data about my system please let me know.
